quotes famed designer Warren Spector expressing the
opinion that the games industry needs to work on bringing down prices. Here are
some quotes conveying his thoughts on the topic:
"We've been a niche
medium that over-charges for its product and therefore generates a lot of
revenue which makes us a little bigger than Hollywood, which is crazy."
"The key is removing barriers to the creation of content and removing barriers
to the consumption of content. Allowing people access to lots of it, at the
lowest possible price where you can make a profit."
"I've always had this anecdotal belief that there's this magic price point for
entertainment. And it's not a per dollar charge. No one thinks about how many
hours they're going to get out of their entertainment dollars."
"If I've got a 20 dollar bill in my pocket I can go buy a book, go to a movie,
but I can't buy a game. I can buy a CD, I can do so much even now, but you
cannot buy a game."
